The editors of the ASCL actively seek codes used in astrophysics research for inclusion in the ASCL. Have a code that should be included? There are three ways to submit a code:
- Fill out this form for immediate inclusion on the website; submissions will be examined by an editor for completion and suitability and may be edited.
- Speed your entry by pulling data from your codemeta.json file by using this link (still in beta; please let us know of any issues!) and then adding/editing information before submitting; your code will appear on ASCL and will be examined by an editor for completion and suitability and may be edited.
- Alternatively, one may send the following information to the editor:
- Code name
- Names of the code author(s)
- Description of the code
- URL from which the code can be downloaded
Note: ASCL can house an archive file of a code if no download website exists
- Link to a research paper for which the code was used
Code does not have to be in the public domain for inclusion. The ASCL includes codes with any licensing scheme, ranging from public domain to any open source (e.g., BSD, GPL) to copyrighted codes.
